“You two could at least say hello,” Wymack said, somewhat aggrieved.
“There’s no point,” Kevin said. “All they are is a distraction."
"It’s called a support network. Look it up."
"Thea is watching from South tonight,” Kevin said, looking to the elevated VIP box. It was too far away and too high up for Neil to make out any faces, but there was a small crowd gathered at the windowed walls already. Knowing the Court was here to watch them play sent a chill through Neil’s veins. Kevin dragged his stare back to Wymack’s face and said, “and my father comes to all of my games. That is enough."
On Wymack’s other side, Abby’s gaze softened. Wymack’s jaw worked for a moment before he could say in an even tone, "Your mother would be proud of you."
"Not just of me,” Kevin said in a rare bout of humanity.
